Japanese essential oil, Hinoki cypress from Nara

The ``Japanese Essential Oils'' series is extracted from plants that are rooted in various parts of Japan, from the north to the south. Essential oils are fragrant liquids extracted from plants. Familiar scents that are closely associated with Japanese life can be easily incorporated into daily life, even for fragrance beginners. First, choose essential oils based on your favorite scent and how you would like to use them.

Yoshino cypress, a representative high-quality building material
Main ingredients: α-pinene, d-limonene, β-myrcene, casinool, etc.
Fragrance characteristics: Fresh and calming woody scent

Extracted from the wood of Yoshino cypress from Nara Prefecture. Although cypress can be found all over Japan, it only grows wild in Japan and Taiwan, and Yoshino cypress is famous as a brand tree. It has been used as a high-quality building material for a long time, and is also used in shrines and temples, as well as in hot spring resorts and high-class Japanese inns.

The mild scent makes it easy to use in shared spaces such as the living room and bathroom, and is recommended for various areas throughout the house.
*Please consult your doctor or veterinarian before use if you are pregnant, have infants, have a medical condition, or are using this product in an environment with pets.

Recommended usage
If you are using it for the first time, please try using a small amount of essential oil before use. If you are pregnant, infants, or have a medical history, consult your doctor before use. Please do not use this method for infants under 3 years old. If you feel any abnormality during or after use, please stop using it.

Please tilt the bottle gently and add one drop at a time (1 drop is approximately 0.05ml).

For scenting futons and cushions
Cut a towel or cloth to the appropriate size, add one drop of essential oil, and then tuck it inside a futon or cushion cover in your closet. If the scent weakens, add more in the same way.

Feel like a hot spring with the scent of cypress
Add 4 to 5 drops of essential oil to baking soda in the summer, or 4 to 5 tablespoons of natural salt in the cold season, mix well, and take a bath. Rather than putting everything into the bathtub at once, we recommend adding it in two to three times, one just before bathing and one during bathing. Even if your nose gets used to it and it becomes difficult to detect it, you can enjoy the scent over and over again with the "trailing aroma".

Forest bathing with cleaning
Add 10 to 15 drops of essential oil to a spray container filled with 200ml of water and shake thoroughly. Spray on a wrung out cloth and wipe clean. That's all you need to do to turn your room into a forest bathing space after cleaning. If it's not enough, use it as an air freshener by spraying it into the space as a finishing touch. Be careful not to get it on household appliances. (*)

*Essential oils can damage plastic, so we recommend a glass container. Essential oils deteriorate easily, so be careful how you store them and use them up as soon as possible after diluting them.
